Aug-08-12  paavoh: An original opening choice, resulting in a pawn avalanche. Pun material?
Aug-08-12  kellmano: Yes lovely game from the current leader. Is 11. b4 just out and out bad? Gives away the rook, two pawns and the centre for two knights that go on to get horribly harassed

Aug-21-12  hellopolgar: 18. Na5 is the losing move, it allowed black's c5 pawn push which is just too much for white in the long.

Game Collection: BOGO(++): THREATEN (BUY) ONE SQUARE, GET ANOTHER 18 ... c7-c5!; ... b7-b6 threatens a5-knight, gains c5-sq free

One of my favorite tactical shots of the year. 18 ... c7-c5! was instrumental in Ipatov becoming World Junior Champion.
